Located in beautiful Cooper Landing, Alaska, we offer daily drift boat trips through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Chugach National Forest. This area is known for it’s scenery, wildlife, and phenomenal fishing, which brings people back year after year. The Upper Kenai River (Kenai Lake to Skilak Lake) is a favorite float of many. The put-in for this float is at the Cooper Landing “bridge” and meanders roughly seven miles downstream to Sportsman’s Landing. Millions of salmon return to this section of the river each summer to spawn, allowing anglers an excellent opportunity to harvest sockeye and silver salmon for their freezer. A trip down the Kenai River canyon (Jim’s Landing to Skilak Lake) takes you deep into the heart of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. It is part of the upper river, and classified as drift only. It is comprised of the last three miles of the upper Kenai River and flows into beautiful Skilak Lake. This less-traveled section has some of the most dramatic Alaskan scenery as well as extremely productive trout waters. The Middle Kenai River (lower Skilak Lake to Bing’s Landing) has gained more popularity with trout fisherman in recent years, and has now become a must-fish section of the river! Known for holding lunker rainbow trout, the occasional steelhead (ocean-run), and having plenty of bends stocked with salmon, this is a river section you should not miss! The Lower Kenai River (Moose River to Kenai River Mouth) has traditionally been more of a powerboat fishing area and is well known for it’s massive King salmon. However, it does attract trout fisherman in drift boats too. Due to the abundant food resources available in the Lower Kenai River, rainbow trout, steelhead (ocean-run), and Dolly Varden move in and out of this zone throughout the season, gorging themselves on small fish, salmon eggs, and salmon carcasses, which allow them to reach record size! Four hour upper river trips offer the angler a taste of either trout or salmon fishing. The species available are determined by the anglers preference as well as salmon run times. Morning and afternoon trips are available daily.
